On Saturday, I had the opportunity to mesh two of some of my favorite activities together; Beer and Yoga. Sudwerk Brewery in Davis, CA was hosting an event that has picked up at craft breweries across the country. Check out this article in the Davis Enterprise by AP, Bend and a beer: Yoga classes and craft breweries team up
Zoe Cooper Caroselli led a 25 person 75 minute class of zen yoga in the beautiful brewery center of Sudwerk. It was a pretty cool experience and great session to meditate, stretch, and practice yoga. Here are Zoe’s thought’s on the program:
” I enjoy practicing and teaching in unconventional spaces – mixing it up keeps it fresh and reminds me and my students that finding our center (or our zen or however you want to say it) isn’t about finding total silence but about embracing reality and learning to balance despite the chaos. The brewery is a very cool place to practice – plenty of interesting sounds and smells – and Bend & Brew combines two things I love to share with friends: yoga and beer.”
It was a great experience, and I’d highly recommend checking out if your local brewery is hosting something similar. I enjoyed a delicious pint of Dry Hopped Lager afterwards. There is nothing like getting a nice workout in followed by a cold lager.
